Cloud9's Svenskeren wins 2019 LCS Summer Split MVP award
The LCS broadcast team, third-party media, and competing teams have chosen Svenskeren as the most valuable player of the season. It doesn’t come as a surprise that Svenskeren made it to the top ten and then took the award. The jungler is having the best season of his career, and he was the only player who isn’t from Team Liquid to make the All-Pro team.
Svenskeren first joined the NA LCS back in 2015 when he signed with Team SoloMid. During his time with TSM, Svenskeren won multiple NA LCS titles and had international appearances at both the Mid-Season Invitational and the World Championship.
Not everything was positive for Svenskeren, the jungler was heavily criticized by the TSM fan base. The decay of his performance ultimately led to his departure from the team. Svenskeren found a new home at Cloud9, where he became one of the faces of the team.
Cloud9 qualified for the 2018 World Championship as the third seed from North America. The team made it from the Play-In stage to the semifinals, where they ultimately fell versus Fnatic. Cloud9 will return to Worlds this year and it’s all thanks to Svenskeren’s performance in the summer.
Svenskeren was behind the team’s success this year. His synergy with mid laner Yasin "Nisqy" Dinçer pushed Cloud9 through the semifinals versus Counter Logic Gaming. Svenskeren is a playmaker for the team and a terrifying opponent in the jungle.
Out of the junglers with more than 10 games played this season, Svenskeren is number one in average kills and average assists, and has the second-highest KDA, just behind Team Liquid’s Jake “Xmithie” Puchero.
The numbers reflect the good season he’s having, and the year is far from over for the jungler. Cloud9 will face Team Liquid at the 2019 LCS Summer finals in Detroit. After that, the team gets a break before they start getting ready for the 2019 World Championship in Europe.
